Christopher Hitchens Has A Great Idea

Stand Up For Denmark:

And there remains the question of Denmark: a small democracy, which resisted Hitler bravely and protected its Jews as well as itself. Denmark is a fellow member of NATO and a country that sends its soldiers to help in the defense and reconstruction of Iraq and Afghanistan. And what is its reward from Washington? Not a word of solidarity, but instead some creepy words of apology to those who have attacked its freedom, its trade, its citizens, and its embassies. For shame. Surely here is a case that can be taken up by those who worry that America is too casual and arrogant with its allies. I feel terrible that I have taken so long to get around to this, but I wonder if anyone might feel like joining me in gathering outside the Danish Embassy in Washington, in a quiet and composed manner, to affirm some elementary friendship. Those who like the idea might contact me at christopher.hitchens@yahoo.com, and those who live in other cities with Danish consulates might wish to initiate a stand for decency on their own account.
Via RealClearPolitics.

P.S. Was just thinking, would not a solemn, civil, respectful demonstration or vigil on behalf of Denmark be an excellent counterpoise to all the irrational nonsense being directed at Denmark and other western nations? Would it not be doubly excellent if a great many rational, thoughtful muslims joined in?

Do they have those?... Rational and Thoughtful are two words that really don't come to mind when?

They are out there. They are just too often bullied by the crazies.

I bought some Danish beer the other day for a party, but it sort of got buried in the cooler so I didn't get to talk about its significance.

Well you owe me at least one beer Franklin, so keep it on ice for me.
